A group has formed to recall Troy Mayor Janice Daniels, who first came under fire in December for her anti-gay Facebook comment and has since remained the center of controversy aftervoting against the Troy Transit Center (a scaled-down version was later approved), telling theTroy High School Gay-Straight Alliance the homosexual lifestyle is "dangerous" and writing a lengthy position paper personally attacking city employees and council members.

"We believe that the citizens of Troy must take our city back from this dangerous, polarizing ideologue," reads a post on the group's website,www.recalljanicedaniels.com.

Daniels said she is not concerned about the recall effort.

"I don’t mind it," Daniels told Patch Friday evening. "It’s an unnecessary distraction to the city, but I’m not worried about it."
